CHI'97 Attendees:

Each year, I find that CHI's selection of conference hotels shrinks and
that the prices seem pretty high.  This year the Advance Program
identifies only three "conference hotels" and the prices range from $92 to
$123 per night for a single.  Prices are in US dollars and a 13% tax
applies.  (Since the program says nothing about tax, presumably it is "on
top of" the price quoted.)  If you plan on hanging around for five or six
nights, the bill can get pretty steep.

Of course you can save a lot by doubling up (or by becoming a student
volunteer).  But you can also save by shopping around.

Below is a list I plucked off the web of hotels in downtown Atlanta.  I
phoned four that are very close to the conference and all were priced under
$90 for a single (see below).  Note that prices vary dramatically from week
to week (and even from one phone call to next on the same day.)

I hope this information is useful for those who are planning their trip to
CHI'97.

Regards,

Scott MacKenzie
